know what the nsa is up to, we didn't fine out from the "washington post" or the "new york times." right? >> uh-huh. >> bill: so i don't blame him for not trusting the american media, and i think that it gets back to the question about -- and i have been in this debate with -- with many friends, well if he really thought was something was wrong with what nsa was doing, then he should not have blown the whistle, he just should have gone through the proper channels. yeah. now, imagine what reception snowden would have got if he had gone to the nsa leadership, or if he had gone to the cia or the white house. >> thank you very much, we appreciate your concern. here have a seat in the back of this unmarked car. >> bill: yeah. or imagine if he had gone to a lot of the main stream media. they wouldn't have touched it. so i got to tell you, when i see my colleagues in the media not doing their job -- and too often it is because -- just as he said they are afraid of being painted as anti-american as unpatriotic, or as anti-the current president of the united states, and so they just -- or
warming. the economy. and jobs. and by the way, nsa and spying and intelligence. and they're all, in a way, they're all also related. they're all part of the same agenda of how we move forward in a way that's best for the country. i don't think we can be -- i'm not saying you are. >> no, no. the interesting thing is, of course, that's what this economic thing is about. you had a lot of -- on the face of it, disparate issues tied up. you had immigration, healthcare and job security and student loans all kind together in this. >> bill: so on the nsa, the president's message, the way i read it friday, sitting there was this program is -- the nsa, they're doing a good job. they're doing a necessary job. they're not violating anybody's constitutional rights. it is not being abused in any way. you just don't understand it. and if you understood it better and if we explained it better, then everything would be hunky-dory. right? he didn't say he was going to change it in any way which i expected from the buzz ahead of time. that we were going to see some major changes. >> you know someone who's b
for the drones -- >> bill: and nsa. >> and nsa, that is where a nice, small percentage of the country is especially when it comes to the war. that's where the majority is. people are done. with iraq. they're done obviously with afghanistan. they want to move on. and going out there and sounding hawkish or super hawkish, i mean does chris christie think he's going to win the presidency by what, outhawking the next democratic opponent or republican opponent? i don't know. maybe on the republican side it may work but it won't work in the general. >> bill: the other thing i find curious and where the split in the republican party has come to play is in the whole issue of immigration reform, right? you would think again, it would be a no-brainer, right? hey, we've got a problem. this is one way we can help fix that problem, right. instead, they just look -- john boehner refuses to bring the senate bill up for a vote. >> i think john boehner knows that if he did and he didn't open it up, he would lose. that there's no way -- >> bill: back to the hastert rule. >> the senate bill would not pa
. >> bill: final question, is there any -- there's a lot of flap lately in congress and outside over the nsa's domestic phone collection program, if you will. domestic here in this country. is there any evidence that the intelligence we gained about this possible attack in the middle east was you know, connected at all or came from their domestic -- nsa's domestic spying program? >> no, there isn't. in fact, adam schiff, member of the house intelligence committee said he would be very surprised if this so-called domestic spying, domestic phone records had anything to do with it. we have been monitoring foreign communications but there's no evidence. i don't think this went through -- al-zawahiri to al-qaeda and the arabian peninsula. >> bill: hey, larry, it's been awhile. nice to talk to you again. >> take care. >> bill: doing a good job there. larry korb, senior fellow at the center for american progress. >> announcer: the "bill press show" is joining free speech tv. starting september 3rd. stay up to date by following us on twitter at bpshow. this is the "bill press show." headlines. real,
expect questions to the president on edward snowden, on drones, on the nsa, on immigration reform, on syria, and why he is giving the medal of freedom to oprah winfrey. i think she deserves it but still get a question about that. in other news, georgia republicans say that they actually thing more highly of paula deen than of martin luther king jr. chuck todd and andrea mitchell condemn nbc's plan to do a mini series on hillary clinton. lots going on this friday morning. we'll tell you all about it right here. to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal, or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. i've worn lots of hats, but i've always kept this going. i've been doing politics now for a dozen years. (vo) he's been called the epic politics man. he's michael shure and his arena is the
constituents not to support the senate bill. you're hearing a lot about nsa surveillance. there was one or two, i think moments of heated exchanges that were made public, basically americans saying you know, what are you doing to stop the government from snooping on our phone records and electronic communications. but a big thing is, these republicans continuing with their threat to shut down the government if obamacare is not left unfunded which, given the criticism, gained from its own senior colleagues and unlikely scenario that leadership in both chambers would support that plan, it is interesting to see these -- this group of conservative lawmakers taking that last stand, kind of really trying to show their supporters, their unwavering commitment to get rid of the law even if it takes shutting down the government. >> bill: one such -- before i get to that, it seems to me that the lack of press attention and the lack of real -- almost revolutionary tactics that these town hall meetings this summer -- really reflects that you don't have the organizational support which was stirring or fanni
